About This Class

This is the third of a ten-part series on Drawing in Procreate. In this course we will talk about textures.

We will learn how to use preset textured brushes to save us time and get nice textured illustrations.

I will use iPad Pro and Apple Pencil but it's ok if you use your fingers instead.

This class is perfect for everyone who wants to learn how to draw faster in Procreate. If you don't know anything about the App, I recommend you to take the two previous courses first: Drawing in Procreate! Tutorial 1 & Tutorial 2. By the end, you will be able to create awesome illustrations in less than 30 minutes!

Preset textured brushes: We talked about present brushes in the first Coast. So I suppose you already have your favorites. This time we will focus on the textured ones. I know charcoal oil, world color, brushes, all of them. Give us a nice texter illustrations, but I will like you to give other bruises of dry. Those other bruises are the ones you will find. Insects like textures, abstract elements, retro. And so one. I highly recommend you to try these sex, sir brushes, because if you get used to them, they will save you a lot of time at the beginning. It's not easy to know which one we need to get the texture we want for our illustration. So I will show you my process, and I hope it helps you. 3. Selecting brushes: we're going to draw this illustration. First thing we have to think about these. How many different textures? The illustration. We want to draw hats here. We need one for the sun, one for the background, one for the actors itself, one for the spines or thorns and one for the flowers. So we need five texted brushes. The easiest way to have all the brushes we need together is to create a new set and make a copy off the ones we need. These would save us time because we won't need to swipe on. Look for the brushes again and again every time we want to use them. As you know, when you feel is your drawing, you can delete the set. Just stopping on it and choosing elite. Remember, these brushes are only copies, so you will find them in their region on sets. Okay, I've added technical pens, A brush for sketching. You will find it in the sketch in set of process around bras to draw the cater's with. You will find it here, finding I like that Dexter disbar us gives me. But if you want a smoother texture abreast from airbrushing set will fit you better. Or if you want a rather finish, you can use another press from the painting said, or from the artistic one. I will use the speak Ill Cross to draw the spines. You will find it in the upstart set. The laborers from there gunning, set to draw the sand, charcoal Ross's or even bonobo from sketching set. We'll find to get sun texture as well. In the first cars, we use several brushes to draw flowers. This time I will choose the old brush from the paint and set. I've tried to flames from the airman set, but it is a bit unpredictable. I wanted US class background, so I went to the water set and choose mart splashes backgrounds with watercolor finished looks great. Teoh. If you prefer this one, just choose the watercolor brush or try with a water for us that you will find in the paint and set. Next step is to create a color palette. Look for reference images in case you need them, and you say I dropper to select the colors you want for your illustration. This time I chose them currently, from the coloring. We have everything waited, so let's go 4. Let's Draw!: choose the technical pencil and draw the cactus letters. Use the terms for button to feed them in the campus load capacity of this cat's lair on Create a new layer to paint the letters angry. Choose a round brush for this task, - paying the characters with different shades of green. Madden. The light is coming from the left, so use lighter green calls for the left areas and darker for the right areas off the characters letters. If you need to use the eraser, remember to top on hold their eraser button to erase with the same brush you was drawing with. Create another lay on Used the laborers to paint this end, change the color off the back or layer to blue to keep in mind the color jury. Apply and shoot. Stand out, create a new layer and draw the thorns with the speak. Your brush increased un decreased the brush size to get the kind off tones you need for each cactus. Create another layer. I'm used the old brust to draw the flowers. - You mean on out to see if the drawing is looking good at some shadows in the sand? Un retouched The captors if you're not happy with the result, - create a new layer for the background. You selection to UN selected part off the campus. You want to splash on used mud splashes, press to get expression effect. Play with the brought opacity. Um, make start like blue with white to get a more interest in effect, continue our in shadows and highlights until you're happy with the result done. 5. More examples: with President process, you will be able to make all kind off illustrations in no time. For example, I did this Christmas card in Onley seven minutes. If you want to make it, you will need that following process. This penguin took me on the left 10 minutes. Imagine the time. It will take you if you have to draw hair one by one. If you want to make it, you will need this six brushes. 6. Class project: This is my reference image. I've already created a set of brushes on a color palette. Create a new layer on draw this sketch with detainee co pencil. I am more comfortable making small drawings, so I will use the transform battle later to increase the size off the sketch. No other capacity and create another lay changed, a brush and the color to draw the metal snap hook, Use the color drop and retouch. If it's necessary, select the object tapping the transform button us we learned in the first course, we will swipe three fingers downwards to copy and paste top fleet. I move the object active.
